Reasons to travel light

Economy, Mobility and Security.


One repercussion of having a lot of luggage is that one has to arrive at the airport early.

This is because of the checking in process for baggage. More often than not, a person is only allowed one hand carry bag. Even if one were taking a train would be much easier with minimal luggage.


Having too many items of luggage means more things to look after.

It is not a secret that thieves roam transport terminals - from buses to trains to airports. With one or two items of luggage, it is much easier to keep track of them.


Excess baggage can cost quite a considerable amount at the airport.

If one is traveling alone, one would also have to pay porters to help them lug their stuff around. More baggage = higher cost.
